A PGR Mission Tomorrow for a Fallen Marine

The boyfriend and I will be attending a Patriot Guard Riders mission tomorrow for a fallen Marine from our area, Lance Cpl. Daniel T. Morris.

February 15, 2006.
The Department of Defense announces the death of:
Lance Cpl. Daniel T. Morris, 19, of Crimora, Va., died Feb. 14 while conducting combat operations in Al Anbar province, Iraq. Morris was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division, III Marine Expeditionary Force, Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.

There is a story on him in our local paper, the Daily News- Record, here

Area Marine Killed In Iraq by David Reynolds

and I found this listing of his obituary from a local blogger 

 
This death hits close to home. A coworker of mine had grandchildren who attended school with this Marine.
 
Rest in peace, Lance Cpl. Daniel T. Morris. Prayers are going up for your family and friends, and we will stand with many others to honor you tomorrow.

God bless the Patriot Guard Riders. Thank you for what you do. I'll be at that funeral tomorrow to honor this young man and his family for the sacrifice they made for our freedom and safety.

God Bless the Marines.

My cousin, Frank Harrah, has been told to report to Camp Roberts on 3/1/07 to be evaluated for deployment - for the second time - to Iraq.  I pray for the intercession of Servant of God, Father Vincent R. Capodanno, MM that all those bravely serving our country now on earth and in heaven be protected by the power of the Holy Spirit.

oh - and you GO girl.....

Love, Leslie
